(Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen SPF 20 $10.99, Ulta.com)
To keep your skin from drying quickly in the summer heat, make sure to apply moisturizer in the morning and at night. Ingredients in moisturizers, such as dimethicone, lock water into your skin cells, making your skin feel refreshed. Popular beauty brands, including Olay and Aveeno, have created best-selling SPF moisturizers known for their extreme wear in the summer months.
Moisturizers and sunscreens have fairly similar jobs. However, sunscreens are made specifically to protect your skin with ingredients to block the sun’s rays. Shiseido’s Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion can be used on both your face and your body to nourish your skin. It’s a top sunscreen contender in protecting your skin from damage like sunburn and premature signs of aging. A plus with this sunscreen is that it is water-resistant, allowing you to take a swim without worrying about sunburn! Hampton Sun’s hypoallergenic SPF 15 Sunscreen, which contains ingredients like aloe vera and vitamins A, C, and E, is a bit different in its application; its a mist that can be sprayed on quickly and easily.
